A Diagnosis

Well looks like Steve has a herniated disk and a bone spur. For someone who isn't sick very often and has never had surgery this is a bit daunting. We won't really know what's going to happen till he sees a neurosurgeon and that won't happen until we get back from the cruise. Steve's doctor has loaded him up with some pain meds and when he uses his crutches he does okay. The bone spur is the main problem right now as it is pressing into his nerve and causing lots of pain. We are hoping the sun and sand will bring some relief :)

So sorry to hear about Steve! I hope he's able to enjoy his vacation...and at least he'll be off for a while to recover.
